Chalkline’s VisiSpecs Wins Visionary in Technology Award

Portland, Maine (January 16, 2018) – Chalkline, Inc. has been named the USA winner of BUILD Magazine’s Visionary in Technology award. This inaugural award program was launched with a focus on companies that are shaping the future of the technology for construction and architecture sectors, and who continue to innovate and develop new techniques.

This award was judged based on merit by the BUILD in-house research team with all potential winners assessed with multiple, relevant criteria, including previous accolades won; company performance over a specified period of time; influence within the industry, sector or region; and client testimonials or recommendations.

“Chalkline’s VisiSpecs applications are a great example of how modern technology can streamline and simplify the way that architects, engineers, and designers work,” said Daniel Hornsby, head of features at BUILD magazine. “The BUILD team felt that the VisiSpecs suite was a fantastically innovative range of software, and we wanted to celebrate that with this award.”

Another core focus of the award is the ongoing modernization and digitation of the architecture and construction sectors. With BIM rapidly becoming an industry staple, a key part of the award’s mission was looking at the firms pushing the leading edge of this wave of innovation, and as noted by Hornsby, “VisiSpecs applications are clear front-runners in the category.”

“This prestigious award is another indicator that our continued customer focus and collaboration is helping us to deliver the most beneficial and innovative applications to market,” said Chalkline’s COO, Seamus McGrady. “Our core tenet on developing customer-driven and customer-verified applications enables us to bring to market solutions that are easy to learn, deploy and manage while delivering quality, time savings, and cost benefits.”

The Visionaries in Technology Award was launched on the back of several smaller features BUILD has run over the past year. These features were well received by their readers, and they saw a rise in the demand for a focused award that both recognized technology firms and showcased their services to the BUILD readership.  As part of winning the award, VisiSpecs is featured in BUILD magazine’s Q1 2018 issue.
